Reggae legend Bob Andy slashed with knife, robbed in Mona

Bob Andy, one of reggae’s great songwriters, was attacked and robbed in the Mona area of St Andrew Friday afternoon.

According to the Corporate Communications Unit of the Jamaica Constabulary Force, Andy was attacked by a knife-wielding man off Mona Road at 2:30 pm.

The man slashed the singer on his left arm and robbed him of J$50,000,$US5,000 and two cell phones.

The robber then escaped on a motor-cycle. No arrest has been made.

Andy, whose real name is Keith Anderson, is rated among reggae’s great composers.

He started his career as a member of The Paragons in the early 1960s before going solo mid-decade.

I’ve Got to go Back Home, Fire Burning and Too Experienced are some of the songs that made him famous during the 1960s and 1970s.

He also starred in the 1978 movie, Children of Babylon.
